Great sales process

Scott Moore made the sales process really great. Laid all the options out, helped us understand different elements and didn’t push. Installation had a little hiccup, but the guys rectified it the next day. Duane Lee and his crew were really friendly and tidy.

Beautifully installed, great customer service

I had Scott come to my house, spend 2 hours going over every possible scenario & thoroughly explaining everything to me. Booking was made a few days later & installation within a month, competitors were 10-14 weeks waiting period. Can’t see the panels from the front of the house which is fantastic. Installers were great to deal with too. Hopefully see a reduction in my electricity bills soon.

A Real Mixed Bag

Real mixed bag with Nectr / InStyle Solar, who we engaged to do our solar as we are Costco members and they run a decent promo. The quote and quality looked good so we signed up after some consideration. After signing, was told I’d been wrongly quoted on a single phase system and would need a three phase. Was promised that the only change was to panel placement and inverter, so we went ahead. Was promised a pre-Christmas install but ended up being mid-Jan (no big deal, but would’ve preferred the word to be honoured).

Installers did a decent job, worked hard, despite some issues mounting the inverter (which a pre-installation inspection could’ve avoided). Happy with the outcome of the install.

HOWEVER, a smart meter to measure output and consumption was not included, despite it being on the first (single phase) quote we received. Despite being told “nothing else is changing”, was not informed a key part of my system had been removed from the quote to keep the original price the same.

Upon follow up was given every excuse under the sun, told how good a deal I got, and that I should’ve picked the omission up. Finally the company did supply the meter, however insisted I pay an additional $330 for installation of the meter.

The system is now fully installed and working well, I’m just really disappointed with the dishonesty and lack of integrity in making their mistakes right.

Great only!!!

I had the pleasure of working with Gioel from Instyle soalr to purchase my solar system, and I couldn't be happier with the entire process. Gioel was not only knowledgeable but also incredibly professional and patient in answering all my questions. They guided me through the selection and installation process seamlessly, ensuring that I got the best system for my needs.

The installation team that Gioel coordinated was equally impressive. The installers were punctual, efficient, and highly skilled. They worked with great attention to detail and leg the benefits of clean, renewable energy and significant savings on my electricity bills. I highly recommend Gioel for anyone considering solar panel installation – their dedication, expertise, and the quality of their installation team are top-notch!"e benefits of clean, renewable energy and significant savings on my electricity bills.

No pressure wonderful experience

After researching several solar companies and feeling overwhelmed by all the offers and lingo, we came across Toben from InStyle solar.
He offered after hours appointments which meant my partner and I were both able to make a decision on our investment together. (He also accommodated an interruptive 2 year old young lady during this process with no judgement)
Being that Toben has been in the roofing industry prior to his employment with InStyle his advice and experience with in the field shown thru, making us feel at ease.
Then the install Thomas the Sparky was wonderful accommodating my migraine and offering contact at a suitable time.
There was NO PRESSURE to purchase only support and advice which is why we choose InStyle in the end, also purchased them for our rental property we are that happy.
We have no hesitation recommending this company, or it staff.

Awesome

Amazing service. I contacted Hugo and my solar installation appointment and payment plan was settled by the very next day, totally hassle free. Sam also did a great job in quick and professional installation of the whole system. They even replaced my old wire strands type fuses with a nice miniature circuit breaker switchboard for free. Unbelievable. Many thanks. Highly recommend them.

Would recomment Instyle Solar.

We were very happy with the service we received from Instyle Solar. The sales rep was happy to answer any questions we asked and followed up with late queries we had. On the day of installation the team arrived on time and we friendly and once again nothing was too much trouble. They made sure we understood what was happening and how to operate the wifi side of things. Instyle Solar are a great company and even after the installation they kept in contact to ensure we were happy and if we had any further questions. They made the whole experience worry free.

Definitely would use them again.

Sales staff was excellent, he knew his stuff and listened to what we wanted. The installers were very safe, careful with our house and friendly. They are being very helpful and happy to explain things more than once.

Exceeded my expectation .. simply the Best

WOW … Instyle Solar simply the best. Exceeded my expectation. From the moment I contacted them on the phone right through to the installation of the solar system and beyond they were there side-by-side with me. They were a phone call or email away. Such a professional organisation to deal with. Their website was so easy to navigate and explained everything you need to know about solar. I have already recommended Instyle Solar to family and friends.

Amazing efficiency

Sales quoting process was friendly and simple. It was comfortable and easy in our own home.

Quite a quick turnaround with installation guys, polite fast installers but quality. The guys explained the process all the way through installation, prep and them deployment, slick and professional in their process and approach.

Finance options make decisions easy also.

I installed a 10.79kW + 16kW Battery

I received many offers from multiple solar companies, yet I chose Instyle Solar as they were the only company that cared about the quality of the system and offered the best mix of different components.

Solar systems involve dozens of elements that affect the performance of both short-term and long-term. It is very risky to make your system unsustainable and have a lifelong hassle.

Marian explained every single element; the solar panels, the battery, the inverters, the conductors used, different warranties, and more!

Sam led the installation and took about 5 hours to finish the system on a rainy day!

Very efficient service.

Their sales and quote was good. They explained they whole process to us, and also gave us an example of our local NRL football club installation. The installers were very efficient, clean and tidy. They had to stop work due to a massive storm. But continued when it passed. Customer service was great, the only thing we had to do was organize with the power company to have a smart meter installed.

No service at all after taking money

I had someone come to my house, look at the roof and talk me through options. He explained the importance of signing up quickly to book installation before STC credits dropped. As soon as I signed up, I got lots of automated emails but I had to chase them for an installation date.
On the day of installation, after arriving 90 minutes late, the installer spent 5 minutes looking at the roof and told me it was too steep to work on safely and he was cancelling the job. No apologies. No other options. There was a month between signing up and installation date. At no time did anyone even mention the possibility that they might have difficulties with the installation.

I have made multiple phone calls to speak to someone about this but no one returns my calls. I then received an email from accounts telling me how to arrange a refund of my deposit.

I am now back to square one and too late to get this year’s STC rate.

A great overall experience - very through sales, great install, and customer service good too

Scott came and visited us to carry out the quoting process. He was helpful and explained the ins and outs of it, so we knew exactly what we were were getting.
The Installation team led by Dyane were also great, very tidy install and cleaned up after themselves.
The Office team were easy and friendly to deal with.
The only issue I had was our install had to rebooked, due to bad weather the first time.
When we got a phone call from from the office to try do the job at short notice (the same day) the staff member did not introduce himself, so when I followed up later that day to try book the job in for a Saturday, it turns out that staff member I spoke to earlier that day was the person responsible for booking the job in!!
Only a minor issue, but good communication goes a long way.

Great service and flexible pricing

Sales contact was very knowledgeable. Not disparaging about other firms or equipment but had a strong point of view based on past and personal experience. He changed the quoted equipment to meet my requirements and preferences and even suggested financing options not through his business. The process was painless and easy to understand. He also kept me informed throughout all steps in the cycle through to installation.
The installation team on the day (there were 3 people) worked quickly and efficiently and kept me across their movements and plans for the day. The handover of the controls (including connection to the inverter via WIFI) was also seamless and explained in detail by the crew on the day.
Grid connection was pre-organised and the team at InStyle even walked me through the process of organising for a new meter to be requested and installed by my power company.

Good investment 3 years on after install

After over 3 years of this installation I haven’t paid a power bill since and was over $1600 in credit until I got a refund of $1200 from AGL which was a nice surprise.
Hot water timer switch too is worth every penny.
Great job InStyle ????

A great and positive experience from start to finish. They didn’t try to sell us things we didn’t need and we’re very informative!
Sales process so simple and straight forward, and the installation process was so smooth also! Very professional and quick!

Solar installation - Easy

Our Representative was polite, punctual and knowledgeable with a passion for selling the product.
All of the setup and applications with regulators was completed easily without any hassle.
Installation was delayed due to another job not going to plan ( delay not communicated, not a big issue). When on-site the installers were great - knew what each other had to do and got the job done. Worked into twilight to get the job done.
Electricians upgrading power now were on time and polite and explained the system well, but had a slight issue with connection of hot water system but was corrected within 24 hours of notification.
Overall, easy ongoing company to deal with for installation of Solar.

Fantastic, Easy Process

Wow! What an easy process! I expressed interest on their website and within 10minutes I had a phone call to discuss my questions. We arranged for a sales rep to come out on my first day off. Unfortunately the day they were due to come, I was sick. With a quick call to the office that morning they arranged my appointment to be via the phone instead. Brad called and went through all the options with me, gave me the prices and allowed me time to discuss with my husband before making any commitments. He then arranged to call back after work hours and we finalised everything over the phone. Today Nathan, Dale and Eric arrived to install the system. From the moment they arrived they were very professional and worked in between the showers of rain to get the job done. Nathan kept me informed during the day, set up the app and explained it and explained/showed how everything worked. I cannot fault InStyle solar and will definitely be recommending them to family and friends.

Unequalled knowledge of how system works.

From our salesman, who spent two hrs, going over everything about how the system works, to how many hrs sunlight our suburb got, by DAY, last year,his knowledge was amazing.
The email/text updates we received, as each step was reached were timely and informative.Install day, the text updates of how far, each worker was away from arriving was terrific. The communication was brilliant! The installers were very friendly ,professional, and fast. Oh, and not to forget the young lady, that arranged our salesman, over the phone.
I cannot fault the company,up to this point.
Highly recommend.

Excellent customer service by whole team

The sales/quoting process was excellent. Very good product knowledge and very informative without being pushy.
The installation team were also excellent. Turned up on time and were completed in good time. Very friendly team, even took time to kick the footy for the dog.
My customer service experience has been fantastic, well informed and well above what I had anticipated.
I would definitely recommend Instyle solar as a solar provider from the experience I have had with them from the very start.
They were very competitive on price but had the better product from my research.
I have already recommended them to family.

Highly recommend

Highly recommend. The entire process was super smooth, minimal effort required on my side. Kept me updated constantly throughout the process and was installed within 2 weeks.

If I did have to provide a negative it was only that the sales rep never answered my questions after the sale was completed, even though he said to reach out if I had any questions. This is only minor but if there is another department to contact would have been better to advise to direct all questions to them. I also wasn't pitched or upsold on battery, so I'm not sure how much this would cost if I wanted it in future.
Overall, I'm happy with the overall experience, very smooth and stress free experience. Pay a little more for a more premium service and product.

Highly recommended. Great to deal with

From the first phone consult to the installation was an absolute breeze. Fully installed under 2 weeks. The information and communication I received was first class. All my questions were answered and I was informed every step of the way where the process was up to. The app is so good and easy to use. The salesman and installers were great. Would highly recommend Instyle Solar to anyone looking to have it installed.

Professional service

Very easy transaction from start to finish. I was kept up to date all the time, with all questions answered. Although they were not the cheapest quote, I found that it was money well spent, with lengthy warranty periods on installation workmanship and products. My personal experience was very good, and would recommend using these guys.

Frustrated

Sales made promises that were not followed up, commitment wa made system would be operational by end of Feb. Beginning of April we still don't have the system we ordered. We ordered a 3 phase system & received a single phase system.
Communication has been abysmal at best, it's got to the stage I have contacted the higher ups directly & even they are not contacting me as requested.
To say I'm frustrated is an understatement!
The battle continues.

Great end to end support and professionalism

Had a great experience with the team at InStyle Solar.

Sales team were clear and detailed in their explanation of the options and the benefits.

The onboarding process was excellent and always kept me informed of where things were at from the lead up to installation to on the day getting a text message that the installation team were on the way and an estimate on when they would be arriving.

Installation team did a great job and were clear about why we would need to adjust the number of panels we could fit v's the quote (5 panels) and how they could rearrange some panels to not have to reduce by 5 panels, only 2.

Several days in now and the system is cranking and the app/website to monitor usage has a great level of detail to help us see our production and usage and help us optimise our power usage to take as much advantage of the solar as possible.

Professional team, excellent customer service

The process of getting solar can be confusing and difficult. However, the team from Instyle Solar made it so much easier. They are with you every step of the way and will answer your inquiry in a timely manner.

Most of my communications with Instyle are by email (great for those who dislike talking on the phone), and the only time I had to get on a call is with I make the switch to a different energy provider in the later stages of the process.

There are different choices of hardware you can choose from based on your budget, and so far they are performing better than expected.

I would recommend anyone to go through Instyle Solar to start their journey on getting solar for their properties!

Professional, Informed and Excellent Service

The salesman had excellent product and manufacturing knowledge, he provided all the detailed information we wanted around the system and comparative products, usage, warranty and was able to answer all our question on the spot. Installation was booked within the estimated time frame, was straight forward, the foreman very helpful providing step by step guidance to set up the software to our wifi and phones. We did have an issue with the system cutting out in the first month however the service team were efficient at responding to our problem and arranging a technician to attend the premises promptly and fixing the issue then and there. Highly recommend.

InStyle - So Good to Deal With

It was a pleasure dealing with InStyle Solar from beginning to end. The quote process was simple and the agent was able to go into great detail about everything. He certainly knew the business and we were sold. From the moment we signed the contract, InStyle were in contact with us about the process and work was undertaken in a very reasonable time. The process for connecting to the grid was also quite simple, with all steps explained for us.
